Since it appears the status of this band is "grey" to say the least my thought was for them to do a 3 night gig over a weekend as a "final shows" kind of festival and call it quits as "the dead. With that said, what would the final line up be and What venue should they play? Please also include who should take vocals on jer's tunes.

Thanks

Maybe I am missing something here, but why should they retire? If the boys want to play music, they should keep playing music. I haven't been able to catch a show in the last couple of years due to scheduling, but that doesn't mean that my schedule won't change and I will finally get the chance.

As to who does Jerry's tunes? No one can do them quite like Jerry did and it generally takes a couple of players to cover his part.

i don't see it happening and phil is playing less and less gigs,the man is going to be 68 next march i think and with his health issues i would think he would like to spend his time with his wife and kids and maybe do some gigs every once in awhile to blow out the pipes.billy's looks content to be painting and chilling at the beach.mickey wants to record every drum know to mankind and bob is having to much fun with ratdog.chances are slim but if they get back together it would probably be a rotation of different guitar players and singers.i've only seen ratdog since the GD called it quits and gotta say bobby sings jerry's songs with some passion,never got into the phil lesh and friends thing,to many chefs in the kitchen so to speak.though i'm happy he's brought a lot of joy to people with that but i just couldn't get into it,to each is own.it was great ride for all of them and to us no matter what year it was.

Unlike most legends(i.e. Paul Bunyan, Bigfoot, Yeti and all great fish stories), we have the Vault as evidence of the bands true exsistence. AND, w/ this Vault, we can prove that the marvelous stories about this band are not TALL TALES!

Without the Vault, we are just a bunch of geezers trading boxing memories in a barber shop.(think "Coming to America" w/ Eddie Murphy!)
